Basic instructions provided were accurate. Most difficult part was bending down and reaching across the oven door. A general information note would have been helpful. The circuit that feeds the igniter and the gas valve is a series circuit. So, even though the igniter was glowing cherry red, the igniter was still the cause of the gas not flowing, The voltage drop across the igniter was larger then normal causing the voltage to the gas valve to go down and to be insufficient to allow the gas to flow.

This is one of the easiest home repairs I have ever done. I shut off the gas and unplugged the oven. I removed the door and shelves. I then removed the two screws that secured the igniter and pulled the connector through the hole in the back of the the oven. No need to splice any wires as the replacement igniter came with the correct connector. It was then just a matter of reversing the process. Very simple and quick fix.

I watched the video of the repair that was on the page, and said, "Oh, it can't be that easy." It was. I just followed the steps he did, and the had the old igniter out and the new one in in no time. I did have to go back in and add the new insulation, as I thought the old would be sufficient for the new igniter, but, other than that, I had it in and out in just a few minutes. The video was really, really helpful! If you don't know what you are doing, just watch it!

We were at a loss for a long time without my boost burner and then while checking all the rest of the burners my husband discovered that all of them had a massive amount of rust on the underneathe side of the burners and that worried me. Well as usual my husband took care of my worries when he discovered Parts Select. We both were pleasantly surprised when we found out that you had what we needed. And the installation was less than 5 minutes, WOW, THAT WAS GREAT! Thanx a million!

Replacement of a Dead Spark Module

  • Customer: Cor F. from Pasadena TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The spark module pulses a stepped up voltage to all four burner sparks at the same time regardless of which burner you want to ignite. I read that this part lasts about 10 years. I don't cook much and it lasted 13 years. On my Magic Chef the part is behind the right side wall panel. Lift the range top,remove all the screws that hold the right side panel in place. This replacement can done without opening any gas fittings.

Ignitor replacement on older Jenn-Air range

  • Customer: Peter from Thousand Oaks CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The oven in my Jenn-Air range started to leak gas whenever I turned it on and a visit from the local gas company indicated the ignitor had probably gone bad. I had assumed the older range wasn't worth repairing but didn't want to spend $800+ for something in otherwise excellent condition. Internet research yielded lots of tutorials on how to make the swap and I decided to see if I could get the old part out before going any further. It wasn't too tricky except one of the two screws holding the ignitor in place had stripped and it was in a location that was very difficult to reach. I used a part of tin snips to cut around it. The new part ordered here came very quickly and exactly matched what I had removed; the wiring harness fit perfectly. It was a snap to put back in and now the oven works perfectly. All for under $50.

My oven would not come on so my wife could bake a cake. The glow coil that ignites the gas for the oven had burned out. The replacement went very easily and fast. This web site was very helpful with all the information I needed to get it up and running again. I enjoyed the cake she made after I got it fixed.
